Through the core values at Langar, we develop the social, moral and spiritual development of all pupils so they can live life in all its fullness.
Religious Education plays an important part in reflecting and conveying the distinctively Christian character of the school. Through the RE curriculum we enable our children to be nurtured, to grow and succeed. They are supported to make reasoned and informed responses to life issues and moral choices. The children study the major world religions of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Sikhism, aiming to develop their knowledge and skills to be able to connect, reflect, evaluate and apply their learning to their own growing understanding of the different religions and beliefs, with a particular focus on Christianity. At Langar, the children experience awe and wonder, joy and mystery through our curriculum and extend their natural curiosity in God’s world.
Understanding Christianity and Other Resources
Our RE curriculum focuses on Christianity and this is taught mainly through the RE Today publication Understanding Christianity. This is a popular scheme which provides the tools to engage children in an informed dialogue which will support them in developing their understanding of Christianity, understanding the world and their own experiences within it. Throughout the year, children will also be given the opportunity to learn about other world faiths appropriate to their key stage.
Understanding Christianity stimulates learning through three strands which are Making Sense of the Text, Understanding Impact and Making Connections.
Langar also incorporates the Nottinghamshire Agreed Syllabus and Discovery RE into the curriculum.
